Welcome to SheriffConnect

Thanks to a coordinated effort between the Wayne County Sheriff's Office, Wayne County Chief Executive Office, Wayne County Department of Technology and New World Systems (now Tyler Technologies New World Public Safety), we will soon implement new Jail Management System software.  JMS is designed to help facilitate jail operations and inmate management.  This new system will replace the current inmate management software that has been in place since 1999.  This project is the largest IT implementation in the County since we went live with the current system.  It offers interfaces and integrated technology that are impossible with our current system.  As the Sheriff's personnel becomes accustomed to the new software, this system will increase the efficiency of jail operations, reporting capabilities and reduce liability.  I know what you're thinking, how does this affect me? read more

On March 16, 2018- Mike Jaafar, Chief of Operations of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office graduated from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Academy (FBINA Session-271).

The FBI National Academy is a professional course of study for U.S. and international law enforcement managers nominated by their agency heads due to having demonstrated leadership qualities. The ten-week program provides coursework in physical fitness, intelligence theory, terrorism and terrorist mindsets, management science, law enforcement leadership, behavioral science, law enforcement communication, and forensic science.

The academy serves to improve the administration of justice in police departments and agencies at home and abroad, and to raise law enforcement standards, knowledge, and cooperation worldwide.

Only the top 1% percent of all enforcement leaders worldwide have the opportunity to graduate from the FBI National Academy. Chief Jaafar follows in Sheriff Napoleon’s footsteps, who is also a graduate of the FBINA.

“This was the most memorable law enforcement training I have ever experienced in life; I will forever cherish this opportunity. The comradery, network, and people involved have become like family – I met people from all over the world.  It was priceless,” said Chief Jaafar, 43, and father of five.

Chief Jaafar was highly successful, earning the prestigious Yellow Brick for successfully completing the running obstacle course designed by Marines. The course is a 6.2 mile journey that includes a running obstacle trail through the woods of Quantico, where he ran a mile in seven minutes, and four seconds, in addition to earning the Bike Brick and Rowing Brick awards for the physical challenges.

Chief Jaafar says, “The curriculum and agility is second to none. I thank Detroit FBI and Sheriff Benny Napoleon for the opportunity.”

Completion of this prestigious national program will benefit the Sheriff’s Office and help continue to provide our citizens with excellent law enforcement.

Former Deputy Chief, Mike Jaafar has been in law enforcement for 24 years, and was promoted to Chief of Operations in October of 2016.

“The campaign is looking at some great options for running mate, but no decisions have been made,” said campaign spokeswoman Annie Ellison.

Whitmer said at a Wednesday campaign event where she received the endorsement of Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan that she is still mulling her running mate options.

“That process is just beginning, I haven’t made a decision yet,” Whitmer said. “But we will have a process and an announcement probably in the next few months.”
